Three puzzles

Jan 23, 2013 • Karen

I spun this out into a separate post because the previous post was already just too absurdly long. Anyway, I wanted to post copies of the three puzzles I worked the most on for Hunt, both to save them for posterity and to give readers some idea of what Mystery Hunt puzzles are like.

The first puzzle is named "Evolution", and contains a bunch of screenshots of email clients.

The second puzzle is named "Will Ruin Your Life [I'm Feeling Lucky]" and has a bunch of images from various pop culture media items.

The third puzzle, "Noise Pop", is a bonus music-based puzzle me and Asheesh put together. It did not actually appear in this year's hunt (it was a backup in case we needed to swap out a puzzle at the last minute). So if any readers of this blog were at the Hunt, and aren't sick of solving, well, here's a new (short, I promise!) puzzle! :)

I've also posted the puzzles' solutions, though (obviously) don't spoil yourself if you don't want to be spoiled!

2. Will Ruin Your Life [I'm Feeling Lucky]


A maze of twisty open tabs, all alike. Or so it seems.

Only a singular path will take you from the beginning to the end.
